RPTV on the Junk Heap!

    I just got back from a bike ride through my part of suburban New Jersey. We have private trash removal, and the haulers only take household garbage, no big stuff. So once a year the towns have clean-up week. You can put what ever you want on the curb, and the town hauls it away. There are always lots of exercise equipment and CRT TVs. For the first time tonight I saw a big RPTV out on the curb. It was an old 4X3 set, but I felt that this ushered in a new era of junk. Very interesting!

    Is that the set that was done in by the storm?

    Wasn't a storm we don't think. We believe it was related to the power line work that was being done to go underground.

    My friends' 50" that was going out on him(but still working) is out there too. He upgraded to the same TV I have(Panasonic 50" Plasma).

    Bummer! :cry: I remember when you posted about it at Mike's place. but I'm getting old, and details sometimes fade. I remember that you got lots of new stuff, and reconfigured. I hope the new geer is working out OK.
